Abstract

This paper presents empirical results from a deep imaging survey of galaxies in the local universe at the J and K s wavelengths. Three hundred ninety-one images have been obtained and calibrated using the same camera and filter set with the Steward Observatory 1.6 m Kuiper Telescope on Mount Bigelow and the 2.3 m Bok Telescope on Kitt Peak. The limiting magnitude is typically 22 mag arcsec -1 at J and 21 mag arcsec -1 at K s. The central surface brightness, apparent magnitudes, sizes, scale lengths, and inclinations are tabulated from measurements made using these data. The purpose of this paper is to provide basic near-infrared data on a variety of galaxy types.
